Leicester midfielder Marc Albrighton feels they have the quality to win the FA Cup ahead of Sunday's quarter-final tie with Chelsea.

After back-to-back draws in the league, Leicester will be seeking a return to winning ways on Sunday when they welcome Chelsea to the King Power Stadium.

It's Leicester's second appearance in the last-eight of the FA Cup in three seasons, having lost to Chelsea in extra time at this stage in 2017-18.

The Foxes haven't made it beyond the quarter-finals since 1981-82 when they were knocked out of the competition by Tottenham in the semi-finals.

Brendan Rodgers' side have already suffered heartbreak in the League Cup this term, losing to Aston Villa over two legs in the last-four, and Albrighton feels they can use that disappointment as motivation against the Blues.

"We're looking forward to it," the City winger told LCFC TV. "The FA Cup was, and still is, a competition that we really want to do well in. We want to go all the way, we want to win it, and we feel that we’ve got the quality to do so.

"We've come this far, we've had disappointment in the other domestic cups, so hopefully we can use some of that disappointment to take into Sunday’s game and get a result against Chelsea."

Leicester can be backed at 3.30 to win Sunday's encounter with Chelsea priced at 2.25, while the draw is available at 3.30.
